Pretty quiet even though there was a cruise ship in port. For the ideal position right on the waterfront it seemed to lack the buzz that the Anchor Inn at the bottom of town had.

Poor service, very slow, no smile. We felt like we didnt matter. People walk past heaps and its very uncomfortable. Food was not good and I will never go back. Such a disappointment

Good food, good service and enjoyed the live entertainment. I wouldn't order dessert there. Not that I often eat dessert but we did this time and not excited by the list. The remainder of the food was good, fresh and healthy choices.

GREAT PLACE TO SIT AND HAVE A DRINK AND MEAL. Overlooking the water and harbour, with Iriki island right in front. The meals were fantastic and reasonably priced, the staff were also great. A must when in Port Vila.

Friendly staff, great service. Red Snapper was dry. Scotch fillet was tough. Maybe chef was having a bad night. Prices and meal size were great..

we found this spot to be nicely tucked away, and beautifully set along the port, ideal at sunset with view over the water. Service was excellent AND organised. Food was 5 STAR. We loved the bar stools on the edge of the water for a pre-dinner drink or after dinner cocktail, as we enjoyed the cool breeze.

Ideally situated for people watching in downtownPort Vila. We sat there for ages on a coffee and enjoyed a pizza and the local beer.

After our initial disappointment that due to the weather, the lobster was unavailable. We each enjoyed a beautiful steak, cooked to perfection. Surroundings and entertainment great.
